SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- AeroHance announces release of the video testimonial for its GasPods Project from legendary Film Producer, Ocean Explorer, Environmental Advocate Jean-Michel Cousteau. The 1 minute 46 second video features his message inviting every driver to reduce their fuel consumption to save money, and also contribute toward saving the World.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, every gallon of gas consumed releases 19.4 lbs. of CO2 into the atmosphere. Transportation rates number 2, behind industry, in CO2 emissions. 67% of the transportation sector is passenger vehicles. It will take 40 years for energy efficient vehicles to saturate worldwide markets.
"On the planet today, there are 2 billion automobiles that release a lot of CO2, which affects the atmosphere, which affects the ocean, which contributes to the acidification of the ocean, which we all depend upon," says Jean Michel Cousteau.
Jean-Michel invites all drivers to install GasPods on their vehicles, to make them more aerodynamic. Improving aerodynamics is a key method for increasing mileage. GasPods offer a simple means for drivers to take action in saving fuel. GasPods are one way for drivers to #BeAtmospheric ™.
Computational fluid analysis by one of the world's most respected independent engineering services group revealed that a kit of 9 GasPods placed on a Volkswagen Golf reduced its drag coefficient by between 5.2% and 6.7%. (http://www.gaspods.com/research/)
Independent Test Team drivers documented fuel savings of between 2% (SUV with Roof Racks) and 17% (Prius V long distance commuter). Volkswagen Golf drivers documented fuel savings of between 4-6%. (http://www.gaspods.com/car-performance/)
If 2% of the world's drivers reduce their fuel consumption by 5% it will mean more for the environment than any government or industry program in effect today.
"Jean-Michel Cousteau is the preeminent spokesperson for the Oceans and for delivering the message to everyone, that they can have a positive effect on the environment in very simple ways, one of which is reducing their carbon footprint from driving," says Susanne Chess, President of Aerohance, Inc.
The AeroHance GasPod® Project is an initiative to encourage drivers to reduce their fuel consumption. It is the manufacturer and distributor of GasPods. GasPods are a patented after-market auto accessory designed to enhance the air flowing around a vehicle, reducing drag, which increases mileage. Prices start at $39.95 per kit of 9 GasPods, which is all that is required to improve mileage of many vehicles. California Made. (http://www.gaspods.com)
